This Vanilla Alchemy leveling guide will show you the fastest way to level your Alchemy skill up from 1 to 300 as inexpensively as possible.
Professions skills are split between expansions now, you'll have a separate skill bar for each expansion. This guide is for the "Vanilla" Alchemy skill in the current retail version of World of Warcraft. I have a separate guide for Classic WoW, so if you are looking for that, visit my Classic WoW Alchemy Leveling Guide.

You can find Crystal Vial at "Alchemy Supplies" vendors, they are usually near the Alchemy trainer.
Goblin characters have +15 Alchemy skill because of their passive Better Living Through Chemistry. An extra 15 Alchemy skill means recipes stay orange/yellow for 15 more points. You can save a lot of gold by doing lower-level recipes for 15 more points.
